Recipients must demonstrate: entrepreneurial practices in the classroom; cooperative learning in the classroom; leadership and involvement in college clubs, student organizations, and campus activities; involvement in professional associations, committee assignments, and college-related work assignments above the normal requirement; effective teaching through student class evaluations; and involvement in the community.
